Transmission
& Prevention
15. Can the virus be transmitted through breast-feeding?

Yes, HIV is present in infectious amounts in breast milk. HIV can be passed from an infected mother to her baby through breast-feeding. This can be prevented when an HIV infected mother does not breastfeed her baby and uses alternate milk recommended by her doctor.
